Zoom on the Kärcher G3500QHT

In a nutshell, the Kärcher G3500QHT is a heavy duty, commercial pressure washer, which not only offers an all-around versatile cleaning experience, but that also allows:

  • complete cleaning of hard surfaces, vehicle washing, and surface prep for painting
  • soft cleaning of delicate surfaces, and gentle cleaning for larger areas with low pressure
  • using cleaning solutions, and rinsing surfaces to remove residue

Its power characteristics and design, its main features and all its additional features are presented ahead.

Power

The Kärcher G3500QHT in use

The Kärcher G3500QHT

Its triplex pump, which utilizes a 196cc engine, may deliver a pressure of up to 3500 PSI (almost 58 times more than a standard garden hose) and a flow of up to 2.6 GPM. Corresponding to these values is a cleaning power of 9100 Cleaning Units.

The Honda GX200 engine of this gas pressure washer is activated by pulling a starter cord, following a traditional approach.

Containing gasoline, the pressure washer's fuel tank can hold a maximum of 0.8 gallon..

Design & Handling

With its hand truck design, the Kärcher G3500QHT provides excellent maneuverability. The robust welded steel frame guarantees longevity of the assembly, providing stability and protection for internal components, even under demanding working conditions. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.

At 70.6 lbs, this unit's substantial weight makes it quite a challenge for users to lift and maneuver, particularly on uneven surfaces where its heft can become even more apparent. A key role in its final weight is played by its 196cc Honda GX200 engine, the triplex pump and welded steel frame. Nevertheless, with its two 12" never-flat wheels, users can manage the G3500QHT with less difficulty, even over uneven terrain.
